A need exists for works of first reference that provide insights into both sides of Indian-white relations. This handbook is intended to help fill the need. The work will be divided regionally, with Vol. I relating events in the Southeastern Woodlands. Subsequent volumes will cover the Northeastern Woodlands, the Great Plains, and the Far West. The final volume will include a general index, bibliography, and chronology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Promises to be a useful reference tool.... Recommended. * Library Journal *
Heard handles the problems of bias, conflicting information, and nomenclature well.... Provides an astonishing amount of elusive information, including some on women, blacks, and captives. Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
Heard approaches his subject with reportorial objectivity, weighing evidence carefully...Heard has given special attention to the role of blacks and white women, especially those assimilated into Indian society...Provides brief, objective information on many persons, tribes, and events that the Dictionary of American History...does not cover. * Booklist *
Heard has assembled an impressive number of brief articles in dictionary arrangement...Students, amateur historians, and librarians probably will find the andbook useful, as will the professional not directly involved with frontier history. * Louisiana History *
...his superior encyclopedic handbook deserves its position as the first volume of a projected Native American Resources Series. * Register of the Kentucky Historical Society *
Scholars always welcome well-designed and comprehensive reference sources.... * The Annals Of Iowa *
